COVID-19 measures are causing organizations to turn to video conferencing applications for remote working. Good cyber security hygiene can help keep out unwanted attendees, protect your employees and secure your data. A few examples of good hygiene include:

  • Require passwords for all meetings
    Meeting IDs can be guessed, allowing unauthorized attendees to join even if they have not received an invite
  • The chairperson joins first
    The chairperson or host of the conference should control admittance
  • Lock calls after everyone joins
    Once invited attendees have joined, lock the meeting to keep out unknown attendees
